Westlake Village, California - May 18, 2020 - Michaelis, Montanari & Johnson's Director of Marketing, Monica Montanari, was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Marketer of the Year category in The 18th Annual American Business Awards® today.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.

Monica Montanari is responsible for re-branding the 35-year-old company by creating their first-ever marketing campaign, logo, digital communications front, and customized marketing materials. The company's website was completely revamped, and social media has been developed for the well-established firm to communicate with clients and share information like never before.

More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. "This is what being Marketer of the Year is all about. It's about transforming a culture so much even if marketing is not in your title. It's good to see your outreach in so many aspects of the business" commented one of the judges.

“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity, and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and compassion. We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”
